Dunno what numbers you might get and a group booking might be less than you could get from loads of individual bookings, but much less hassle dealing with one group than loads of individuals, less chance of problems and probably less cleanup after.Thank you Martin, appreciate all your comments and the group / weekly booking idea - nice.
Because for those who dont want to break the law by illegal wild camping, there is precious little available. A managed site that offers 99% of the same experience, would do well.
The woodlands are managed, but the Bushcraft area would only be lighty managed ready - it's a woodland and that's how we want it to stay!For those that like their bushcraft organised & can or are prepared to pay, then this sort of thing sounds right up their alley...
Yes, the wider woodland is there to walk around and enjoy, it's managed for public recreation!Hmmm, would the people using your bushcraft facilities be allowed to wander out side the alloted area ?.........What is the woodland managed for exactly, the timber industry, hunting ?
And Martyn tooWould the campfire not be adequate?
Certainly helps with planning and has not offended - thank you.And Martyn too
Unfortunately fire isn't fabulous- you're talking about a largish, sodden mass, which a cover would burn off leaving the contents for the consideration of everyone around the fire. Personally I'd feel uncomfortable about both this and cooking on the fire subsequently and I wouldn't dream of exposing the kind and helpful chaps from the meets that I've been to, to the potential embaressment. A waste fire is the only way really and it has to burn a fair time, with a fair amount of heat, to fully dispose of used sanitary wear.
Scavenging animals are likely to dig for such a pungent blood smell if buried and if you're considering a toilet, you'll make yourself much more attractive to family groups by suppyling a disposal bin. I hope this helps and hasn't offended
Why not? Bylaws are created under statutes and the breach of the statute is illegal. They can be prosecuted in a magistrates court and leave you with a criminal conviction. Is that illegal enough?Exactly, trespass is a civil tort and breaching a byelaw is not "illegal".
You may be convicted in a magistrates but breaching a byelaw is NOT a recordable offence and therefore not a criminal conviction. You will not be summons on the 1st breach of a byelaw as you cannot be expected to know every byelaw in every parish.Why not?
